Milford Beach Activity Centre

We provide water based activities including Paddle Board Hire, Kayak Hire and Shoreline Tours.

Our activities offer a real taste of the fun involved in being on the water and trying out something new, all based on the exceptional Milford Haven waterway.


Shoreline Tours: A Different View

Our instructors can also offer shoreline tours to explore the military, fishing and industrial history of the town including tales of the Viking visitors and how they influenced the development of Milford Haven.

Safety First, Every Time

All hires include buoyancy aids that must be worn at all times.

Full safety briefings will be given to users before any activities take place with all necessary safety equipment provided. All staff are trained in first aid, safeguarding, recovering users and their equipment. Staff have VHF radios to call for immediate assistance in the event of emergencies.


AALA Licenced

We recently qualified for our AALA licence

This means we can now take under 18s out on the water without parents being present. Parents can drop children off for pre-booked sessions with us, and we can also take school and youth groups out on the water. The Adventure Activities Licensing Authority (AALA) is the licensing authority for outdoor activity centres for young people in Great Britain.

Do you have your own paddle board for you & your children to use? Do you want more information on how to get the most out of it in a safe way? Take a look at our parents page for more information.

Our Location

Milford Beach Activity Centre is based at Milford Waterfront overlooking Milford Beach on the magnificent Milford Haven Estuary.

Milford Haven Estuary is the second deepest natural harbour in the world after Sydney harbour in Australia which has made it perfect for naval fleets such as admiral Lord Nelsons, fishing fleets including Whalers from Nantucket, Massachusetts who were brought over to establish commercial fishing from the haven, and more recently large tankers carrying crude oil to the refineries since the 1960’s to today’s Super Tankers carrying Liquified Natural Gas to the 2 LNG terminals.  Previous to all of this Milford Haven was frequented by Viking settlers with the name Milford supposedly coming from the viking term ‘Mill Fjord’ and one of the towns districts, Hubberston being named after the viking King Ubbe.  With such a varied history Milford Haven waterway with the fantastic facilities at Milford Marina in particular is fast becoming a destination in Pembrokeshire that people are coming to so they can experience the clash of history, culture, nature, industry and leisure all in one place!

Kayak Tour Great afternoon spent completing the Kayak coastal tour with the family (of 4). All 4 managed the conditions. Chris provided sound advice and guidance throughout during session and gave very informative insights into the local history of different points on the coastline. We all thorough enjoyed it and would recommend trying this out if you have spare 2 hrs. All equipment, which was of good quality, was supplied.

So much fun and great value, highly recommend I highly recommend going here and enjoying the Paddle board and Kayaks. The three men that run it are very friendly, helpful and passionate about what they do. My teenagers had a great time and I did watching them having so much fun. They went on the Paddle boards and Kayaks, their guide really went out of his way to ensure they made the most of it and enjoyed the experience. This is a must if you go to Milford Haven.
An experience to remember We had the best time at the Milford Beach Activity Centre. It was one of the best kayaking experiences we have ever had. Chris was very knowledgeable and gave us a great insight into the local area. I highly recommend this for beginners and people who have been doing water sports for years.
